My favorite version appears on "Garcia". Love his pedal steel playing. I think for the most part this song (for me at least) always fell a little short when played live.

The "Garcia" version is absolutely gorgeous and brilliant - sublime pedal steel. I feel that "An Odd Little Place" is an essential part of the whole. Easily my favorite Jerry solo album.

Favorite live version is Alpine 8/7/82, the Wheel slowly drifting in from a Space that was way way way out there. This show was released as DP32, but honestly I think the audience tape I have had for years does that sequence, and the show, more justice, with a bit more Phil in the mix at key points than the board. (The whole 2nd set is excellent- the China-Rider that opens the set is my fave post '74.)

As I mentioned in another thread recently 10/2/77 is a nice version with a neat segue into Truckin'.
